The police state has only grown worse in recent decades and there is a nationwide cover up of the true details about how many police officers kill people each year. Many newspapers have recently reported the number as 400, but I highly doubt this is accurate and it seems to me to be grossly under reported. Of course it is coming from the mainstream media.
A journalist has been attempting a nationwide database on police killings for some time, but the information is not readily available, as I myself have noticed as I have many times tried to find information to bring us such numbers. As the journalist writes about this experience:
“The biggest thing I’ve taken away from this project is something I’ll never be able to prove, but I’m convinced to my core: The lack of such a database is intentional. No government – not the federal government, and not the thousands of municipalities that give their police forces license to use deadly force – wants you to know how many people it kills and why.”
Killing citizens isn’t the only thing local police is good at. They’re great at theft, too.
PHILADELPHIA COMING FOR YOUR HOME
The city of Philadelphia is trying to steal Chris Sourovelis’ home, and the homes of thousands of others in Philadelphia.
In March 2014, Chris’s son was caught selling $40 worth of drugs outside of the family home. His son had no previous arrests nor a prior record, but still he was ordered to attend rehab. On the day Sourovelis was driving his son to his first rehab, a frantic call from his wife came through – the police were evicting the family and seizing the house. How? A little known clause known as “civil forfeiture.”
